Hi, open up your case and look at the cables "Sata" will be a smaller dark gray/black connector and pata/IDE will be an gray larger ribben cable. I have a HP Pavilion - comparison.gif

Your System Elite m9357c support both SATA or IDE therefore you dont need to worry. Today more people prefered SATA, a small cable than IDE with a bigger cable which block air flow.
Anyway check the availability of the free connector on your motherboard before you buy the device to make sure your previous drives do not accupied all the SATA or IDE port. There is only one IDE connector.

Good of Luck!

HELP MY COMPUTER WONT READ ANY CD'S EXCEPT A DVD,, WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?? ANY HELP


hi

you have either one of these ..

5187-5619 = DVD-ROM/CD-RW combination drive - 48X CD-R write, 32X CD-RW rewrite, 48X CD-ROM read, 16X DVD-ROM read

EL436-69001 = 48X DVD-ROM CD-R/RW optical drive - 48X read, 32X read, 48X read, 16X max write speed

make sure you buy CDs or DVDs which are speed compatible to your optical drive or COMBO drive speeds

if you are busying compatible speed CD media, then take some compressed air (can) and clean the drive bay and inside the optical drive area, to dedust it .


go to this site and review all the related sites .. read carefully and try to figure out what the possibility (issue) is .

if ALL this fails, you may have to replace the DRIVE itself

i hope this helps

How can I find out if my HP Pavilion dv4000 has a DVD burner?


The simple way is to insert an empty disk and try burning the disk with some content. If it burns, that means you have a dvd burner fixed with ur device. Another way which is comparitively complicated is to check the device in the device manager. Right click on My Computer and click on Manage on that. You will get another window opened
In the left navigation pane, you will see device manager. click on that and see your DVD Drive status. If its given as DVD+ RW then you have dvd burner installed in ur system.

HP Pavilion DV 6000 laptop dvd rw will not eject sometime


the easy answer is that it's the cd or dvd, that somehow it makes the drive stuck, or it's not inserted properly. however, i'm sure you know how to insert a dvd, and that your problem is even with an empty drive.

then you have to think of something that may have gotten in there to jam the drive. paper, something from your desk. it does happen.

lastly, you're looking at hardware failure. of course, you can pop the drive out with a paperclip stuck into the little tiny hole in the plastic-- they all have them. that's not a solution, but it will get your drive open.

how are you on warranty? if you bought the unit of credit with a gold or platinum card, it may have doubled your one year warranty. you may need to replace your drive. newer laptops have a "bay" and you can just get a replacement and put it in, like replacing the battery. ask hp. I have a pavillion 6707 and i called 5 days before my 1 yr warrantee ran out, and they send a power adapter free, overnight shipping. they seem to be good about it.

let me know!

It may be really dirty or just to old or has had laser failure.

There cheap these days, and CD drive with DVD Rom reading ability are like $20 to $30 depending on speed and brand.

And some advice. Dont by HP Pavilions. I've worked on alot and i find they have outdated parts cuz there remanufactured from older computers and you have a hard time upgrading due to hard to find drivers
